I was made aware of the following by the ENT specialist I met, as I had been suffering from cold and severe cough. I just want to mention here the chat of us
** Exercising: He literally told me on my face, “Your life is waste if you can not spend one hour doing exercise”. Fair enough! The things which are not in our control can not be avoided any way. But since, exercising makes one healthy, it shall be taken on priority. As per him, a rigorous exercise of one hour per day is must and should
** Body, on it’s own: One shall try to make his body work against all the viruses and bacteria for at least two days before taking medicine, especially anti-biotic. He said “Everything is in your body, let it work on it’s own. If you start giving medicine in the earlier stages of sickness, your body will stay back expecting the same every time, rather than fighting back by generating needed power from with in. Also this is the main cause for the recent ‘Super bug’ virus!
** Pain is subjective: “Pain is subjective” he said when I mentioned that I could not cough anymore as I had been experiencing severe pain when I was coughing. Really, I tried it and it worked. Pain is subjective, mostly. He gave me some examples in which the parties had undergone major operation, but still they could carryon with their works as usual. One should be strong to face anything, and anytime!
** Kids’ health: “If you don’t take care of yourselves at your younger age, you will be solely responsible for any health problems of your children. There will be no mistake of your kids, rather you will be held responsible for all irregularities. So, take care. Especially girls should be doubly careful” he warned.
** Various methodologies: He also suggested me to do steam inhaling twice a day, to drink turmeric milk to avoid cough though it is a very old method, but still it works.
This is it for now. Hope this would help you.
